to run against president bush, he should have ran four years ago. >> four years ago, barack obama and john mccain faced off in a first debate that was nearly canceled when the republican suspended his campaign because of the meltdown on wall street. the day of their second debate, the stock market dropped 500 points. >> now the troubles are spreading. the market took another dive today, and there are some big names now involved. >> reporter: the day of the third debate, the stock market dropped over 300 points. >> fear that the country could be entering in one of the most serious recessions in decades, led by wall street's 700-point sell-off. >> now four years later, the president who faced john mccain in those debates and beat him faces his new republican challenger for the first time. >> i'm looking forward to head to head. >> an mirror image of '08, a campaign is chaotic mash. new issues, new controversies, every day. the polls are bad for romney and good for obama in the swing states. but the national numbers are as tight as they get. the primaries are over, the conventions ar
. i was a 23-year coal miner for many years. barack obama is wanting to do away with coal. i want to see mitt romney come back to my area and talk about call. we have a lot of people down here suffering because barack obama has shut down the coal business. i am a christian voters. i like to take the bible and lay it down and look at it and see which president i would like to vote for. i cannot find anything in the bible that i can vote for for barack obama. he does not have anything i can vote for him more. you turn over to romans chapter 1 and it talks about homosexuality and is an abomination of god. the two exodus' chapter 20 it talks about not killing babies. he is proud of it. there is no way a christian voters can vote for barack obama. host: some of the issues you just discussed were not discussed last night, or they? caller: they have been discussed in the past. i know mitt romney says he is against the homosexuality and will not vote for gay marriage. that is another thing he is against -- do not go in debt. when you become a debtor, you are a slave to whoever you borrowe
and ron reagan, both msnbc analysts. this is a tough blog by a guy who has been very strong for obama over the years. andrew sullivan of the daily beast. he wrote this last night, basically just at the end of the debate. this was a dissaster for the president for the key people he needs to reach. his effete wonkish lectures may have jolted a lot of independents into giving romney a second look. obama tyke looked tired, even bored. he kept looking down. he wasn't there. the person with authority on that stage was romney. offered by one of the lamest moderators ever and seized with relish. this was romney the salesman and my gut tells me he sold a few voters on a change tonight. it's beyond depressing, but it's true. gentlemen, that's a tough assessment. it's matched by this, i'm showing you one of the strongest headlines, a full banner basically giving it completely to romney last night. governor rendell, you have been in a lot of tough debates. i don't know what you thought. i guess i'm known as an obama supporter and i certainly wanted him to do well last night, and yet i don't get it. i
every year. we give them an appraisal. it's time to give president obama an appraisal. >> what do you want to hear from romney tonight to actually make that case to make sure accountability is there? >> i think governor romney actually needs to show us the strategy that i know that he has. i don't -- i'm not looking for nuts and bolts, maria. but this is the vision of a chief executive. someone who's going to lead this country. i want to see leadership. i think he'll show us leadership. and i want to see his vision for the future. >> some have suggests the president should ask the governor how long it takes to turn around a distressed situation like the country was four years ago. i mean, would he be changing management at the top at this point? >> in the business world as you know if people don't hit their targets, they move out. and my own opinion here is -- >> we're not hitting our targets. >> we're not hitting our targets in any respect. if you -- you know -- >> but you know what he will say. he will say i was handed a bad hand four years ago. i inherited this. when does it become
it or not the first time they've seen barack obama in four years and the first time they've seen mitt romney. >> we watch this stuff all the time. >> bill: that debate was not for us. it was for the undecideds. >> not to say -- for example, my wife is not an undecided voter but she doesn't follow this stuff as closely as we did so we sat down to watch it together and 30 minutes in, she looks at me and she's not a very political person and she looks at me, what is he doing? he's not winning this debate. he's not coming off very well. and so you know, it is not just something that we're in a bubble and we follow this all the time. he really didn't do a good job. >> bill: no. i think people were waiting for him. they would hear romney say something and they were waiting for him -- again i keep coming back to that -- >> i'm still waiting for it. >> bill: i keep coming back to the $716 billion. it drove me freakin' crazy! because i know that it's phoney-baloney. it's been called phoney-baloney by politifact and "the washington po
and i am very disappointed in him -- obama four years ago and i am very disappointed in him. >> what made you decide to vote for mitt romney? >> i think he is the only one who could really get us out of this position that we are in. it can go on like this. i am against obama for what he did and taking 4 $5 billion out of our medicare system and putting it into obamacare. >> thank you for your calls. continue to comment if you want you on twitter and c-span.org. both presidential candidates will have campaign appearances tomorrow. we will have live coverage of president obama speaking at george mason university and later on mitt romney will be speaking in virginia. both of those will be live here on c-span. >> we need to tackle our nation ' as challenges. we need to save and strengthen medicare and social security. we're not going to scare seniors. we will save benefits for seniors and for my generation so that these promises are kept. they have laid out -- >> they say that we stole medicare and you have seen the ads and everything. nothing could be further from the truth. >> next thu
and spending policies are threatening the financial foundation of our country. every year since barack obama has been president,, the federal government has spent over a trillion dollars packard more than it has taken in. we have a $16 trillion national debt. we are mortgaging the a future of our children. the national debt today totals $50,000 for every man, woman, and child in in america. we can do better and we will be better when we elect mitt romney and paul ryan on november 6. president obama call would have us believe that this is somehow the new bubble. joe biden -- joe biden. there is the gift that keeps on giving. they would have us believe that somehow this is the normal. that this is the best america can be. they would have us be our best days as a nation are behind us. that up -- we don't believe that. we believe the 21st century will be another american century. we believe our best days are yet to come. we know that to do that, we have to have new leadership in washington d.c. and we need mitt romney and we need paul ryan.

to the other guy. the democrats were in control for four years, two under bush and two under obama, yet it was all bush's fault and nobody takes responsibility. that's the problem. the voters need to take responsibility and get rid of every one of the incumbents, it's maybe not in this election, but if they don't get this country straightened out and get the economy straightened out, but just take one election in two years, if it's not better, get rid of every one of them and they will finally get the message. host: let's look at some national news stories. this story from the new york times -- and this other story in the times -- looking at other international news stories on long lines of what our last caller was talking about, whether international news is getting attention. and this in the washington post -- the debate tomorrow night will focus on domestic issues. what would you be listening for? if you're not going to watch, why? monty writes -- in new orleans on the republican line, eustice. caller: good morning. i don't know how anything can change. romney would have to come up w
i would like to make, is 20 years ago, i became the luckyest man on earth because michelle obama married me. i just want you to know, next year we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. many jobs were lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse. because of the resilience and determination of the american people, we have begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we have seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. housing has begun to rise. the question tonight is not where we have been, but where we are going. governor romney has a perspective that says, if we cut taxes, skew toward the wealthy, and roll back regulations we will be better off. i have a different view. i think we have to invest in education and training. i think it is important for us to develop new sources of energy here in america, that we change our tax code to make sure we are helping small businesses and companies here in the united sta
's been selling for the last year. >> president obama at that rally in denver earlier today. very, very different from what we saw in the debate last night. watch this. >> the last point i'd make before -- >> two minutes is up, sir. >> i think i had five seconds before you interrupted me was -- the irony is that we've seen this model work really well in massachusetts. >> all right. moments like that may have contributed to what so many people out there see as the president's debate loss. our cnn/orc poll of viewers, people who actually watched the debate, finds that 67% think mitt romney was the clear winner while only 25% think president obama won. let's get some more now from our chief political analyst gloria borger. gloria, how damaging was this debate to president obama last night? >> i think we have to let the polls come in. and we'll let the voters decide. but i think you saw from the way the president was behaving on the stump this morning that even he knows that this was a pretty damaging debate for him. look, mitt romney showed up as somebody who was reasonable, as somebody wh
today all saying question not afford four more years with president obama in office. one ad targets nevada voters and features greg anthony who was born in the state. another focuses on unemployment and foreclosures in ohio. and this one. >> over $0.30 of every dollar obama spends is borrowed much of it from countries like china. he is not just wasting money, he is borrowing it and then wasting it. >> that is a huge romney talking point and really one of the only plans we have heard from him is if he is elected we'll crack down on trade. he brought that up on wednesday's debate when he said every federal program will have to pass a test. it is worth borrowing money from china to pay for it. yes, china does hold large amount of u.s. debt but its stake is only 8%. we owe two-thirds of our debt right back to the federal government. romney is also focusing on messages that president obama will raise taxes on middle class by about $4,000 per family. but the obama campaign is firing back and saying that study has nothing to do with the president's policies. fact the presi
years later and we have trillion dollar deficits. >> what happened there you didn't see was obama was in the middle of a sentence. mitt romney interrupted and said, you were president for four years, and the president just said, yep. didn't keep going. didn't say wait a second. i'm still talking. none of that. >> you're right. you know, when the president was looking down, this was a different thing for him, because a lot of the times he has that chin up and he's usually in control and powerful and his body language reflects that. by looking down as well as backing down from those kind of interruptions from mitt romney, and mitt romney did that all night to show how he could be aggressive and assertive and go toe to toe with this president and look presidential. romney was effective in doing that during this debate where the president -- i think his strategy was to be more likeable, and we saw that congruent in his body language, with the head tilts, which are around the idea of likability, which was a big thing toure brought up earlier at the top of the program. >> we saw a lot o
over 10 years. the president -- president obama is arguing that that came out of overpayments to insurance and other things that won't affect the care of patients who are on medicare. mitt romney is saying you can't isolate where the money comes out and it's ultimately going to affect people's care. >> mitt romney did give some specific examples of programs that he would cut and among them is pbs. let's take a look at that. >> is the program so critical it's worth borrowing money from china to pay for it, and if not, i'll get rid of it. obamacare is on my list. i apologize, mr. president. i use that term with all respect. >> i like it. >> good. okay, good. so i'll get rid of that. sorry, jim, i'm going to stop the subsidize to pbs. i love pbs, i love big bird, i actually like you too but i'm not going to keep on spending money on things to borrow money from china to pay for. >> were you surprised that he went there with jim lehrer hosting the thing? >> i was very surprised. i would say that moment is probably the closest we got to one of romney's awkward, you know, mitt-isms l
. there are a lot of points i want to make tonight but the most important one is that 20 years ago, i became the luckiest man on earth because michelle obama agreed to marry me, and so i just want to wish, sweetie, you happy anniversary, and let you know that a year from now, we will not be celebrating it in front of 40 million people. four years ago, we went through the worst financial crisis since the great depression. millions of jobs remember lost. the auto industry was on the brink of collapse, the financial system had frozen up. and because of the resilience and the determination of the american people, we've begun to fight our way back. over the last 30 months, we've seen five million jobs in the private sector created. the auto industry has come roaring back. and housing has begun to rise. but we all know that we've still got a lot of work to do. and so the question here tonight is not where we've been but where we're going. governor romney has a perspective that says if we cut taxes skewed towards the wealthy and roll back regulations, that we'll be better off. i've got a different
